Ukraine 3/5: Silly Statements

Putin's talking out of both sides of his mouth again.

Russia said on Wednesday it could not order "self-defense" forces in Crimea back to their bases ahead of the first face-to-face talks with the United States on easing tensions over Ukraine and averting the risk of war.

Well if they're self-defense forces that you can't order around, then it's an internal police matter for Ukraine, and you should never even leave your barracks when the Ukrainians start arresting them and trying to figure out who they are to know if they're going to be charged under Ukrainian law or sent back to Russia.

I ****** despise Putin. I don't understand how the European nations put up with him.

And this isn't much different than Kuwait in 1990.
